Joachim Loew has revealed his provisional 27-man squad for the upcoming 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation.

Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer and another Dortmund star, winger Marco Reus have both been included in the Die Mannschaft provisional squad.

"To work with the best players in Germany, then develop them and to make them better, to form a team that sets the highest goals, this is what drives and still gives me joy".

Germany, who claimed their fourth world title in Brazil in 2014 courtesy of Mario Gotze's extra-time victor against Argentina at the Maracana, named 27 players in their provisional squad for next month's competition.

"It looked very good, very pleasing".

"Neuer is back in full training and we want to see and judge him in the training camp", said Low, who has named Barcelona's Marc-Andre ter Stegen, Bayer Leverkusen's Bernd Leno and Kevin Trapp of Paris Saint-Germain as his other goalkeepers.
